Zero to Hero? FV4005 Gets Epic Buff in 9.20.1
The FV4005 Stage II at Tier X was frankly a godawful tank destroyer at Tier X, and not surprisingly ended up as one of the least played vehicles in the game.
The tank was simply painful to play. Broad as a barn, poor camo, slow turret traverse, terrible gun depression, slow top speed; the FV4005 was pretty much a disaster from start to finish.
The new FV4005 planned for release in patch 9.20.1 fixes almost every problem with perhaps the biggest buffs we’ve seen this year.
Gun depression goes from -5 to -10 degrees, and the gun traverse has also doubled from 45 degrees to 90 degrees. The ammo capacity has been hugely increased, and the 4005 can now carry enough Hesh rounds to wipe out the entire enemy team!
The top speed was increased from 35 to 50, and reverse from 13 to 15 …. but additionally the HP to ton power ratio is much better. This awkward tank can now not only dish out massive damage, but also flex around the battlefield, and use its gun depression as a ridge warrior.
This video by DezGamez shows that, unless WG dials back the buffs, this former zero will be a terror on the battlefield.
